With the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 we are in a period of heightened anxiety for everyone, but especially for children and young people. In response to the situation Jigsaw (South East) has launched a dedicated telephone HELPLINE to enable us to try and support all who need it and to answer any queries you may have.
All of our services are now being delivered on line and by telephone, email or text.
- Referrals are currently being taken over the phone or by email – please call us on 01342 313895 if you need support or advice. Our dedicated Helpline will be staffed between 9am and 12pm weekdays. *Outside of those hours please leave a message or use the contact form and we will respond as soon as possible.
- Alternatively you can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are finding it difficult to talk with your children around, please use our Contact Us page and let us know when and how it’s best to communicate with you; phone, email, text etc. We’ll try our best to respond when it is most convenient.
